Montrose Gymnasium in the spotlight

Posted on Mar 19, 2021

We are pleased to see the new gymnasium at Montrose Primary School officially open for business. Gaining some well-deserved recognition, the project has been recently featured in Architecture & Design and the local Mount Evelyn Star Mail newspaper.

Our design for this much-loved primary school in the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges creates an exceptional new facility.

“Our new gymnasium is an interactive learning environment for our school that stimulates a growing child’s mind and body. Our fully equipped gymnasium affords our students the opportunity to be highly active during physical education and sport lessons, while also discovering the importance of health and nutrition through the kitchen garden program in our new canteen’s kitchen. The gymnasium offers a platform for teachers to collaborate for professional learning and a place where all students and staff, as well as the wider community, can meet for a wide variety of events in state-of-the-art facilities,”
Glenn Storr, Assistant Principal, Montrose Primary School

A special thank you to all staff and students at Montrose Primary School, and to the design and construction team: Hive Engineering, Fryda Dorne & Associates, Kinban Building Consultants, Ziebell Landscape Architecture and the builders – Switchco. At H2o, thank you Tim, Vieri, Agatha, Teresa and Kate.
